Bethany enjoys getting to know the Golden Shovel clients and the communities they serve on a detailed and granular level, helping them to define their goals and objectives, and then creating and implementing the strategies that help them to achieve those goals. Through her time with Golden Shovel, she has been privileged to bear witness to community transformations and has been delighted to play a part in their growth.

Bethany currently lives in Annapolis, Maryland with her family of nine (husband, 7 kids, and dog, Sox). They like to travel - their two favorite destinations are the Outer Banks in North Carolina and Disney World. On weekends, you’ll find them going to museums and galleries in D.C., visiting historic sites up and down the East Coast, and cooking new recipes, ideally from around the world.
